    Keep an eye on ebay/gumtree for second hand. Size really depends on what kind of stuff you're building; I needed the 300mm because I built large pieces, you might find the 150 is better for you

    I reckon you're unlikely to hear much difference once you factor in the cutting noise at 24k rpm. The big boys (Biesse and Homag) offer air cooled spindles and those things are designed to run all...

    Just set the rip fence, tilt the blade and drop the height so it just clears the top; that's how I've done it. I see you have a Hi-Lo fence, which makes it even easier to get a push stick in.
